Damage Assessment Teams Collecting Data; Beware of Scams

May 26, 2020 - Damage assessment teams working with the Midland County Operations Center (EOC) are currently canvassing areas of Midland County to assess flood damage and assist property owners with completing the Midland County Flood Damage Assessment Tool. These teams will ask property owners questions related to their flood damages only and will not require or ask you to sign documents or provide as part of their data collection process. Team members will be wearing high-visibility vests and will not ask for any personal identification information such as social security numbers, household income, or birthdates. These individuals are volunteers working in coordination with the Midland County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and are not affiliated with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Securing state and federal assistance is a detailed process that begins with in-depth damage assessment at the local level. In order to provide a clear picture of the horrific devastation in this community to the state and federal governments, it is critical that every residential, business and non-profit property sustaining flood damage complete the Midland County Flood Damage Assessment. FEMA will not be directly involved until a presidential disaster declaration has been issued. Residents should not attempt to contact FEMA directly regarding their flood damages

Residents should visit the Flood Damage Assessment Tool link at the following locations:

Some residents have reported being contacted by individuals identifying themselves as government representatives or private contractors asking for personal identification information. These individuals are not affiliated with FEMA or any Midland County Residents are cautioned to be mindful of scams and should be aware when from agencies you’re not familiar with that want to sell you restoration or flood-related services. Do not be pressured into signing any documents or paying up-front costs for services that will be provided at a later date.
